Triton College Hosts 'Cosmic Rabbits' Art Exhibition

Triton College will be hosting French artist Kristin Meller’s art exhibition Cosmic Rabbits on Thursday, Sept. 22-Nov. 11, in the Triton College Art Gallery (J Building, J-107). The event is free with all invited to attend with no registration necessary. The gallery hours for the fall semester are Monday-Wednesday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., and Thursday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 

Cosmic Rabbits focuses on a rabbit’s life cycle. The life cycle is portrayed through combinations of graphic elements and cosmic visions (astronomy and art) using color, form and graphic sequencing. 

According to Meller, the concept of cosmic rabbits came from the Aztec concept of time - life is followed by death and death is followed by life. Meller focused on the rabbit’s life phases from birth to death, then voyaged through death back to life. 

Meller used different colors to describe the life cycle of the rabbit, such as pink to reference their body when they’re born, red for their blood and dust particles for death. 

Kristin Meller, born in London in 1959, moved to France where she obtained her master’s degree in French literature at Sorbonne University. In 1992, she started making artist books (books that include a variety of materials and art techniques, including drawing and ink) with a series called “Variations on Various Themes.” Meller learned printmaking, woodcutting and typography, and then intaglio (printmaking techniques like etching and dry point) at the Paris Art Studios. Her exhibitions have been shown all around the world.
